Jiufang Yang obtained her MSc in Food Science in China and started her PhD study at the Department of Pediatrics of UMCG in September 2017. She had a half-year experience working in a Dutch company as a Market Assistant and one-year experience as a Local Contact for an American company. These diversified experiences made her believe that it is important to step out of the comfortable zone and try to live the life to the fullest.

“I hope to bring more diversity to the sponsorship team and help establish a bridge between companies and PhD students.”
